WA Clean Buildings Standard

Clean Buildings Standard

MacDonald-Miller provides energy benchmarking and building performance services to ensure your building will be in compliance with the Washington Clean Buildings Performance Standard. To meet the Clean Buildings Act requirements, all commercial buildings (20,000 square feet and larger) must benchmark their buildings using Energy Star Portfolio Manager and meet their Energy Use Intensity (EUI) target.

Why partner with MacDonald-Miller as your Building Performance Contractor? We work with building owners to provide cost-effective energy-saving solutions. We can help develop energy management plans, including creating energy benchmarking reports so you can feel confident meeting the new performance requirements and comfortable in your new Clean Building.

Swedish Hospital, Customer Review


“MacDonald-Miller and Swedish began our initiative years ago to modernize our approach to Facilities Management, which included advanced fault detection, smart energy analytics and operational sustainability. Through this collaboration, we have achieved significant EUI improvements, utility savings and pivoted to a more predictive model for our preventative maintenance program; compliance with Seattle energy code requirements as well as the Clean Buildings Act have been another positive result of this work. MacDonald-Miller is now partnering with us at every Swedish Hospital and continues to support our commitment to environmental stewardship”. – Andrew Davis, Executive Director of Physical Environment, Swedish
